  1. Thanks Dan ! Unfortunately I was not available last night for basic weather, but likely a repeat of other workshops. I plan to register for some of the others and I passed this info on to my brother, who recently bought a fancy power boat. Needless to say he does not drive a hybrid car !
  2. Yes, I am posed to jump in, should someone drop out. Thanks.
  3. Hi Prudence, I see you have a full group, but if anyone drops out, let me know. Right now I can do Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Also, who do we contact to reserve a parking space? Best, Sue
  4. Hi Joe, I completed my wavier/registration, yet I do not see it in google docs shared with me. Did you receive it? Thanks, for all you do. Sue
  5. Hi Joe, unless Maine changes their quarantine date effective through end of August, we won’t be able to conduct this club trip. Are you considering changing the date to Sept in the hope that the quarantine will not be extended . Best, Sue
  6. Hi Dan, Thanks again for setting up this social hour. I followed your latest instructions above, however the message under the mtg title continued to state after several attempts, “ waiting for the host to start mtg” Any suggestions? Thanks, Sue
  7. Thanks Dan for offering this fun, virtual gathering. I was not able to "attend", yet hope to join the next social hour. Thanks again Dan, we really appreciate your creativity !
  8. Hello NSPN Members, Yesterday, for the second time this winter, our Haverhill Pool Session was canceled. The High School is experiencing a shortage of Certified Life Guards. They will be conducting certification classes at some point to increase the number of available guards. This move is unlikely to help us this season. Are there an NSPN’ers out there, or their friends or family, who are certified life guards who may be available for pool session (to be paid by Haverhill High)? If so, PM me and I will forward your info the the appropriate contact person. Thanks, Sue
  9. I just edited the am to pm ... sorry !
  10. John Huth : Weather for Sea Kayakers 2/22/20 By Sue H., 48 minutes ago in General Message Board John Huth once again has volunteered his time to present a workshop for NSPN members to understand weather and how these apply to sea kayaking. John is a long time NSPN member, and has a unique set of qualifications to present on this subject as he is both a physics professor/lecturer at Harvard University and an accomplished kayaker. Additionally, he is the author "The Lost Art of Finding Our Way”, a book exploring the strategies employed by early travelers through techniques of the modern era. John's past weather courses have broadly covered weather topics such as: the approach of warm and cold fronts, how to read cloud formations, wind, the air circulation around high and low pressure systems, and how to evaluate weather signs. Members have come away from past workshops with a heightened understanding and appreciation of the physical forces that affect us while on the water. The session will run from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm. This workshop will be held in the Meeting Room ( rear of the store) at REI, 279 Salem St, Reading, MA. Please sign up in calendar as The Meeting Room has limited capacity.

  12. until
    What are the components of weather? How do we evaluate weather signs? How do we apply our knowledge of weather to the art sea kayaking? If you ponder these questions, this workshop is for you !
  13. Thanks Folks, keep the info flowing !
  14. Hi Everyone, NSPN's Board of Directors are looking for a well ventilated space (and heated during winter months?) to use for a boat repair workshop. I have been asking around and have not identified an appropriate location. A small barn, a detached uncluttered garage, a large workshop room with commercial ventilation etc. would work. If for example it was a small unheated barn, we might be able to rent a portable heater to make it work. Carl Ladd has told us he would be willing to conduct a hands-on boat repair workshop with a collection of member's boats. So, if you have a knowledge of a space that might work for the purpose of such a workshop, please let me know. Thanks for your help ! Cheers, Sue
